An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue
Pennsylvania Avenue Temperance Statue
Just across 7th Street is a smaller sculpture to "Temperance." This piece honors the fight to stop people from drinking alcoholic beverages. Some people consider this the ugliest statue in Washington, D.C., but it stands today where it has for over 100 years. For many of those years, the sculpture stood in front of the Apex Liquor Store.
This sculpture called "Temperance," located near the Civil War statues at 7th Street, has been called the ugliest statue in Washington.
